Former UNSG Kofi Annan is much admired for his wisdom, his measured comments about international issues and his dignified demeanour. Singapore is fortunate to have him become the first Li Ka-shing Professor at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy. For this, we have to congratulate the Dean, Kishore Mahbubani who knew Prof Annan when he was our UN Perm Rep in New York. He will be here for a whole week. I learnt much from his insights at SM Goh's dinner for him last night at the Istana.
